Okay, it seems everyone who is old enough to talk these days has a cell phone. I am almost 19 and I just bought my first, which I will be paying for entirely on my own. The main reason I bought it is that at university, I am rarely in my room, and neither is anyone else, so if I want to contact people, I need a cell phone. Also, over the next few years, my phone number will be changing alot (I will move out of residence, back to London for a bit, up to the cottage, back to Ottawa in a new apartment, back to London, etc) so I kind of needed a phone number that would change, especially for when I get a bit older and start meeting with business professionals and all that fun stuff.

So, how many people have one and what do you use if for?

i have one because../
wait a second..

back to london you say?
thus you are most likely english/british?
why the hell are you calling it a 'cell phone', its mobile phone foo'#

I have a cell phone because Im at uni and never in one place at a time to be found. So if people need to contact me I need a cell. It doesnt help that I leave it in my room though.
Sat in a lab, curing diseases. They actually LET me play with chemicals!
#5
I have one... and I have it because it's useful. Just good to be able to get in contact with people, and let people get in contact with you no matter where you are.

or is it just another place the yanks have stolen off the british?

no, no, sorry. London, Ontario.
Although mobile is a much better name than cell, maybe I'll start calling it that. Or cellular. haha, "ya just call me on my cellular telephone"

^ He means London, Ontario I reckon...

Anyways I got one just over a year ago, because Rogers called my mom and asked her if she wanted to add another phone to my parents' family plan for a total less than what they were paying for only 2 phones. So it really made no sense NOT to get one. Otherwise, I probably still wouldn't have a cell phone. Useful little dealie, I guess. I use it to... call... people. But yeah, people these days really overuse them. I myself have fallen victim to the evils of text messaging lately.


EDIT: Damn am I ever slow about that Ontario thing.

To be honest, its brilliant. I dont need to carry around a pen and paper, a computer, a radio, a video Ipod, a camera / video recorder, a TV, a USB pen etc. Its briliant

Because I can call someone for help if someone is trying to kill me.
Because I can easily contact my friends by text messaging.
Because I like to take pictures with it.
Because I love my Happy Tree Friends-theme ringtone. YAY!

Not much, only £50 a month after tax, and that includes insurance.

Probably not

Yeah, my old phone was only 2.0

I have one to be contacted when I'm roaming aimlessly, need my friends and don't have my laptop, have work to be done, has a good camera, a MP3, keep me amused, shows that I'm extremely anti-social in public, I can contact people cheaply.. the list goes on I suppose but I love having a phone

What wonderous phone is it?

Well I need my mobile phone to call people. So my parents can find me when I'm out, To 'txt liek lolz!' and for music and taking photos.

And you post in the metallica thread? You should hang your head in shame.

I have one but rarely use the thing. Its a bit crappy. I rather not have one but its just for emergency situations. Which I never have.

Meh. Mobiles suck.
WHY DID I BECOME A HOBO!?

Its this beast!



The only bad thing about it is it crashes, turns itself off randomly and the joystick sticks sometimes

I bought my missus this phone, in white because she complained about her other one being boring:

Well you'd be surprised with what some people can use them for these days... like Logz over there. Also I think he meant the question as in "who do you call, or what situations do you use it for?" and so on. The point is, new cell phones scare me.
